NOTE:
this is a concept album.
- i locked myself up in a room with the casio sa-20 and a laptop for recording.(no programming is used).
i wanted to make one hour of casio stuff and didnt allow myself to quit before it was done.
(started at +- 8o clock in the night till +- 7 in the morning)
tracks are in the same order as the originall recording.
so if you pay attention you can hear when it really started to hurt my brain. :)
cheers to that!

WHY LO FI ENCODED DIGITAL AUDIO?

Lo-fi describes a sound recording which contains technical flaws such as distortion, hum, or background noise, or limited frequency response. The term "low-fidelity" is used in contrast to the audiophile term high fidelity or "hi-fi", which refers to stereo equipment that very accurately reproduces music without harmonic distortion or unwanted frequency emphasis or resonance.

the term 'lo fi' in digital audio refers to an audio file (mp3,flac etc) encoded in a lower bit rate or sampling rate. Which creates a lower sound quality.
Such audio files may be offered on the internet because of their smaller file sizes and hence shorter download times
Its use is sometimes due to the artist's financial limitations but is often a deliberate rejection of so called main stream music. a rejection of the values of commercialism..

My personal opinion why I make lofi music releases
(I still make hi fi aswell)
And why I support lo fi artists from around the globe:

- ofcource it's a rejection of the so called main stream music and a complete opposite of the value of commercial music, but it's also a form of expression, art and experimentation. (and there can't be enough experimentation!)
I compare lo fi music/sound like listening to an old radio / record.

encoding in lo fi makes those hums, distortion ,background noise and even data loss,
but it also gains a nice warmth over the whole recording.
wich is (I think) a pleasant thing for the ears.
Like a warm fire place in a cold house.
even harsh noise can sound very pleasant in a lo fi recorded audio file.

Also lo fi releaes are fast to download, wich makes it perfect for people
with crappy modems (they still exsist!) or slow internet Connections to download and be able to join the free music/sound revolution., share quick idea's for inspiration without downloading for one hour and don't know if you like it or not.

I heard producers talk about how important hi quality recordings are. Even experimental artists are in general not very open for this completely overlooked alternative sub genre.
It's not about the bit rate it's about if it's a good piece of audio/track/music sound or art production.
I have big respect for a producer/artost who makes a great album and decided to encode it in pure lo fi.
It's such a cool thing to do!

For new listeners to this genre, open your mind, don't let the mass media distort your brain, once you love lo fi you'l never want anything else!
you'll be warned! it's punker then punk! arter then art and trashy-er then trash!!
im a lo fi fetishist and i'm very PROUD of it!
